Here are the popular dice games you can play at a casino:
- Craps. If you have already watched the movie, The Big Town, you'll surely have an idea on how craps is being played. Any American gathering wouldn't be complete without a group of craps players. The game uses two die, and the player is obliged to stake a given amount. The other players will have to guess the sum of the two dice or whether the player will win or lose the game; each bet will be visible on the computer screen for viewing. If the shooter wins, he or she may roll the dice again and place another bet, or he may withdraw. However, if the player loses, the other players can accrue a much higher amount. Craps is categorized into two kinds of bet: the field bet and the pass line bet. The pass line bet is the most famous type of craps. This can also be referred to as the left right center game. The rule of the game is simple: the player must throw a 7 or 11 on the first roll in order to win. If the player unfortunately tosses numbers 2, 3, or 12 on first try, he loses. When the player succeeds on the first throw, the player will keep the dice and makes another bet; however, if the player quits, he gives the dice to the player on his left. The field bet is the easiest and most practical form of bet. This bet wins if the player successfully made it to numbers 2, 3, 4, 10, or twelve on the second roll; however, the player will accumulate the money if he makes it to a 2, 3, or 12 on the next roll.
- Sic Bo. Sic Bo is originally called "Grand Hazard," but Americans call this "chuck-a-luck." Sic Bo is a Chinese term for "dice bowl", which refers to the bowl that holds the three dice. Though Sic Bo has many names, it is much easier to play as compared to craps. This game uses three dice and gives a variety of results. The players can bet between the sum of three dice or the total of two dice; thus there's a bigger chance for players to win the game. The players can stake accordingly with small and large bets. The small bet wins if the result of the dice ranges between four and ten, while the big bet wins if the sum is 11 or 17.
- Hazards. Hazard has been a popular gambling game since the 14th century. Every American gambling casino is loaded with people, mostly businessmen, playing hazards. First, the player will guess any number from 5 to 9 and then roll the two dice. The player loses if the dice turn out as aces or deuce-ace.
Whatever dice games are available, every player must consider the rules of the game and how much money he places as a bet. There are other types of dice games offered in a casino, but it's best to choose the game that suits your age.
